I hope this is the right place to ask this. I'm very new to Unity but not to programming. I also have some basic game programming experience.

I'm searching for text based versions of the videos from unity3d.com/learn/tutorials. These tutorials are very good, but I end up forwarding videos a lot to get key screenshots and code snippets.

Is there any text / pdf / html / .doc / .rtf (i'm very open) version or similar resource to learn unity? Again, those tutorials are amazing and I'd hope to find something of similar quality, but I know that if I have to skim through tens of hours of video I'll end up frustrated. I get that the long hard way is probably the most robust one for deeper understanding, but I was hoping to hack a quick project.

EDIT :

If this can make it a relevant question, then I am currently looking at the "Roll a Ball Tutorial". Really, any other text tutorial would be very welcome

    \$\begingroup\$ Usually I vote to close questions asking for tutorials in general, but in this case you're looking for a pretty specific document so I think this question is on-topic. Also, I have to agree I hate trying to pick this stuff up from videos - I much prefer text I can search for keywords to jump straight to the step I need! I hope the text versions you want exist — the videos I've watched from this series are quite good, but way too rambling to use for quick reference. \$\endgroup\$ – DMGregory Dec 22 '15 at 6:14

You can look into noobtuts.com. I've learn a lot of basics for Unity3D from here.

More text tutorial can be found on catlikecoding.com. And another on raywenderlich.com (it's for Unity 4.3 but it's not very different now)

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks, this is very relevant. Unfortunately, many of those tutorials are behind a 30$ paywall. Hopefully I'll be able to get enough traction to be know what I don't know from the free content. If nothing else comes up I'll mark you as accepted but I was hoping for something better. \$\endgroup\$ – Eric Dec 22 '15 at 19:37

I highly recommend Catlike Coding tutorials. They are a great resource for learning Unity and game related C# coding.

There are plenty of free options out there.

  • Tutsplus - This might be your best bet. It has Numerous tutorials along the lines of "How to make a game like X" that start right at creating the project.

Some others:
